You Know an Idea is a Good One...

when it has to be forced on others. At least that appears to be the lesson New York state senator Andrew Lanza is trying to teach children. http://www.silive.com/southshore/index.ssf/2010/06/kids_come_up_with_ideas_for_ne.html

It would be great if one of those kids said “There ought to be a law that the government (Federal and state), must have a balanced budget every year.”

I second this question. Why would that be great? The government can easily balance its budget, by simply taking more from taxpayers.

If a kid said something like, “There ought to be a law that the government must reduce its budget every year until it’s spending only on military/police/courts, and as little as possible on those services,” then that would be pretty great.
